Can you use Exilis, Thermage on the eyelids?

can you use Exilis, Thermage on the eyelids?

Yes……but it depends on the system.  I’ll run down these briefly here!  🙂

  • Thermage –  has an small FDA approved eyelid tip that can safely be used all the way to the lash line lower and upper.   In my opinion, for safety, the tip should be used with the gel cushioned laser safety  “contact lenses” in the eyes.  Comforatable.  Same for all these below.
  • Exilis –  the hand piece in different and there is not a special eyelid tip so the treatment can be done above the brow for a little lift, around the sides the crow’s foot area and underneath over the bone – all for tightening but not actually on the eyelids.  Comfortable.
  • Peleve –  I’ve not seen or heard of an eye tip for this so the above Exilis info would apply.  Someone please correct me if I’m wrong on this!
  • Ultherphy –   Same as Peleve –  this system tends to be painful.

Fraxel, a laser, also has an FDA approved eyelid tip that can safely be used to the lash line if needed.   It works fairly well for fine crepiness and lines.

Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
